GDT: Sabres @ Hurricanes -- Jan. 11, 2019

Recommended Posts

Watching a player with his goal scoring instincts is a pleasure. There isn't anyone on the team like him. Best natural goal scorer since Vanek. Maybe Mogilny depends on how he finishes up this season.

Great pass by Dahlin 

Give Dahlin a few years and that power play shot is a goal, not a goalie rebound assist to Skinner

The way the puck is bouncing around like a superball, I'm impressed that Rasmus even made contact with the one-timer!  Ice looks awful tonight

So with 40 goals being a formality for Skinner (that's fantastic), does he make 50? Yay or nay.

Just got home, how we looking ? 

Started a little slow, picked things up as it went along. I thought it was an even period. Carolina has good speed.

A pretty even period. Hutton whiffed on a simple shot and the puck bounced off the top of the net and was dropping behind Hutton when Scandella knocked in an own goal trying to save it. Sabres got a late PP and Skinner jammed in a goal mouth rebound. Edit: well, not whiffed; misplayed.

I say he does it like Danny Gare did back in the day with a hat trick in the last game to get 50.  BTW, in that same game, Rick Martin needed one goal to get to 50 and didn't get it.

I think he does.

He'd be worth every bit of 8.5 to 9 for 8 years. I don't see his skating slowing down for the next 6. He's just a pure sniper, you have to keep him.

My concern isn't re-signing Skinner, it's building a line 2 comparable to keeping up with the Jones's (Toronto, Tampa, Boston) for the next 8 yrs without sacrificing defense.

I think he batted it in out of the air.

I think you can jam a puck out of the air.

Rob has mispronounced their goalies name at least 4 different ways so far. It's actually quite impressive.
